Used to be fantastic, needs update or overhaul
I used to be a die-hard Twitterrific user on both iOS and OS X. Twitterriffic was for a while the best option and I really benefitted from the seamless integration between the two apps and they both worked so well. It’s been a few years now and my patience is starting to run out. First, the desktop app (this one that i’m reviewing now) started to seem neglected compared to the ios app which was getting more updates. understandable, sure. I let it go. Besides, even if it felt a little old, the desktop client works OK. and it still does. works OK… but come on! It used to be the best! I’m sure the talented iconfactory folks have other stuff to worry about, but this app is definitely languishing out in the hot sun. maybe let it go? I’ll keep using it, but who knows for how long...
Don’t waste your time with this.
Seriously, it’s terrible, they should pay people to use it because it’s not even nice to use. It’s clunky. I expected it to be of a similar design to the iPhone/iPad app but it’s just nasty. It’s like someone’s first worst attempt at writing an app. It crashes, it’s out of date with twitter, probably hasn’t been updated in many many many many many months, possibly years. Avoid this application at all costs, treat it as if it were a zombie. In fact it needs it’s head removed and put out of it’s zombie misery.
Least of several evils
I use twitteriffic largely because of inertia, and because I don’t feel like shelling out the cost that the other front-line twitter clients want. Most of the features are pretty good, and v5 on iOS is nice. However, perhaps my biggest complaint (aside from v5 not being out for osx yet) is that they still haven’t figured out how to handle animated GIFs yet. What’s taking them so long?
